The Padagogy Wheel - It’s Not About The Apps, It’s About The Pedagogy -

The Padagogy Wheel - It’s Not About The Apps, It’s About The Pedagogy - | SoRo class | Scoop.it
The Padagogy Wheel is designed to help educators think – systematically, coherently, and with a view to long term, big-picture outcomes – about how they use mobile apps in their teaching. The Padagogy Wheel is all about mindsets; it’s a way of thinking about digital-age education that meshes together concerns about mobile app features, learning transformation, motivation, cognitive development and long-term learning objectives.

Stacey Mendan's curator insight, May 27, 10:07 PM

Digital pedagogy does my head in.  I welcome any support that guides the incorporation of digital pedagogy into my classroom pedagogy.

Matthew Smith's curator insight, June 2, 3:28 AM

Digital pedagogy is such a complex field, but it doesn't have to be! The SAMR model, Bloom's taxonomy, frameworks for teaching literacy, numeracy and other capabilities, as well as this pedagogy wheel are great tools for helping us to get through the fluff and into what really matters - the learning experience. It's all about the pedagogy first - learner-centred, content-directed - and the apps we use to apply that pedagogy, second.

Stephanie Veldhuis's curator insight, June 3, 2:28 AM
I feel that this wheel is the best way I have been the SAMR model explained. When first introduced in word format, it can be difficult to understand the differences between each level. This is a clear representation of thinking which I think all teachers should have a look at and apply to their curriculum planning.

Why Where You Live Matters

Why Where You Live Matters | SoRo class | Scoop.it
When you woke up this morning, were you in a house, an apartment, or a condo? Look around you. What kinds of buildings do you see? Skyscrapers, mid-rise office parks, strip malls, tracts of suburban homes, fields or water? When you went to work, did you drive, bike, take a train, or walk? When you go to buy food, how far do you go, and how do you get there? Where do you go to get a drink?

Eratosthenes calculation for the size of the earth around 240 BC

Seth Dixon's curator insight, February 1, 2016 12:45 PM

Eratosthenes is often referred to as the "father of geography" for creating meridians and parallels on his maps to organize global information, classifying climatic zones, and as shown in the video, calculating the circumference of the Earth. Plus, he coined the terms so he gets the credit. If you have never pondered the meaning of the word "geometry," the accomplishments of Eratosthenes will certainly show that the mathematical prowess was at the heart of expanding our collective geographic knowledge.
